The University of Oxford consists of 38 colleges and 6 permanent private halls- a diverse community covering diverse subjects. Oxford colleges are not only responsible for the teaching of undergraduate and postgraduate students, but also provide dormitory accommodation, which is called the “college system”. Most of the colleges are located in the city centre, with accommodation usually located on the main campus, or a short walk away, ensuring travel is no problem. Each college has its own living and learning facilities such as a libraries, laboratories, computer rooms, classrooms, dining halls, bars, gyms and laundry rooms, as well as a Junior common room for downtime. These recreational facilities are usually in close proximity to college dorms, and many social activities at Oxford University are run on a college-based (‘collegiate’) basis, so it is easy to make friends. Living in halls of residence not only helps foreign students form close international friendships, but also inspires them to understand and integrate into the culture, and way of life in the UK. We firmly believe that working in Oxford, as part of such a diverse community of different backgrounds, is a tremendously enriching personal experience.
Thanks for your lecture (The Impact on the Earth by Human Beings and the Visualisation of Global Sustainable Development). I learnt a lot from this method of dealing with data. I think the visualisation of data is of great value to my future studies.

Thanks for your lecture（Big Data and Social Media）, I really learnt a lot from it. It really surprised me that big data science can find its place in social science!

Thanks for your lecture (AI & Smart City)! I learnt a lot about the smart cities of the future. Since I am a student in the department of automotive engineering, I paid great attention to the part that was associated with smart vehicles and transportation, which has definitely broadened my perspective.
OTL positions represent a valuable opportunity in your college career to cultivate and improve your leadership, public speaking, mentoring and team coaching skills, in addition to event planning.
OTLs are expected to serve as positive role models to our programme applicants. These students will push the college’s academic mission with maturity and responsibility, familiarising guest students with campus resources whilst enthusiastically tackling any questions or issues that should arise. Successful candidates will serve as mentors during our summer school programme, working closely with the programme administrator to ensure smooth day to day operations. The head of our orientation team will assist students during seminars and group discussions, provide them with necessary resources, and organise informative, relaxing activities during breaks.
